With the Girls Robots Dragons public sale now live, we’re excited to announce that we have integrated Chainlink Verifiable Random Function (VRF) to help ensure a fair and verifiably random NFT mint for all Girls Robots Dragons NFT minters.
This exclusive collection was created by legendary artists Zoltan Boros and Gabor Szikszai. The widely acclaimed duo have created cover art for hundreds of sci-fi and fantasy books and made significant artistic contributions to Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, a Star Wars RPG, the World of Warcraft TCG, and Hearthstone. As a tribute to the artists' decades-long history, the back of every NFT will showcase one of their classic artworks.
Users are now able to mint NFTs in our public sale ending June 28. The first 3,000 GRD NFTs will receive DUST tokens equal to the original purchase price of the NFT. Also, GRD NFTs can be purchased via credit card — no crypto address required.
In Girls Robots Dragons, there are 15 main characters (5 girls, 5 robots, and 5 dragons) in front of two randomly selected layers. There are 3,000 unique Girls Robots Dragons NFTs, with a variety of classes possible for each one. Some lucky holders will be able to redeem extra benefits with their NFTs, such as the ability to collect bonus art, win ETH or merch, get their initial purchase price back, or set up an online meeting with the artists.
As fairness and transparency are a fundamental part of our values, we have integrated Chainlink VRF as a core component of the Girls Robots Dragons NFT minting structure. Chainlink VRF is not only the industry-standard random number generator (RNG) solution but also provides a way for us to definitively prove to our users that the RNG behind the NFT reveal is truly random and can not be manipulated.
Chainlink VRF works by combining block data that is still unknown when the request is made with the oracle node's pre-committed private key to generate both a random number and a cryptographic proof. The Girls Robots Dragons smart contract will only accept the random number input if it has a valid cryptographic proof, and the cryptographic proof can only be generated if the VRF process is tamper-proof. This provides our users with automated and verifiable assurances directly on-chain that the NFT mint using Chainlink VRF is provably random, fair, and was not tampered with by the oracle, outside entities, or the Girls Robots Dragons team.
“Chainlink VRF is the best solution for NFT projects needing a secure source of randomness. By helping increase transparency and enabling the generation of provably random outcomes, Chainlink VRF gives our team peace of mind and inspires confidence from our community that we truly believe in creating a fair Girls Robots Dragons NFT mint.” — Gabor Szikszai, co-artist of Girls Robots Dragons
